The long anticipated full version of ‘Sou da yo‘ is finally out with the release of Megumi Nakajima‘s CM Ranka EP which featured the said ED theme and insert songs from “Macross Frontier: Itsuwari no Uta Hime” movie…all done in Yoko Kanno’s CM style.

Macross Frontier’s Galactic Songstress SHERYL NOME releases her a new single titled ‘PINK MONSOON’. Her song will resound throughout the Universe tomorrow…that’s Thusday, 21st Oct.
Hurray! The new MF movie trailer is up on YouTube and it isn’t as boring as the other promo one that I’ve seen.
